On-going relationship

 

To show my commitment to building the on going relationship with my clients I offer the following FREE to all my clients:

 

  • Initial meeting and review of the business, a chance for us to get to know each other.

 

  • Year end meeting to discuss the accounts, any planning opportunities and any other issues.

 

  • On-going tax review, I don’t want you to pay anymore tax than you need to so at every stage I will review your position and advise you of any savings to be made.

 

  • On going telephone support, as one of my clients I do not want you to be worried about incurring costs by picking up the phone to me, most issues can be worked through on the phone and I will not charge for this, if I have to go away and do some extra work I will let you know beforehand if it will lead to extra costs.

 

  • Accountancy app includes tax tables, some useful calculators and relevant articles.

 

  • Recommendation of other advisers, I will not be able to help with all of the issues your business comes across, but the chances are I will know someone who can and I would be happy to get you introduced.
